    Wind Energy and Birds: Take Action

    What can our readers do to support bird-smart wind energy solutions? First, understand that although climate change is real and must be addressed, we should not be rushing to deploy solutions that damage our continent’s ecologically and economically important birds and bats and their habitats. Beyond their inherent value, these animals perform critical ecological services – such as pest control, pollination, and seed dispersal – that are worth billions of dollars to national economies and enhance the quality of all our lives . . .

    Imminent danger for birds flying the Eastern Seaboard/Atlantic migratory route

    Dear National Wind Watch, I have lived on Monhegan island in Maine for 30 years. Monhegan Island is a small island (1 mi × 3/4 mi) that is located 13 miles off of the coast of Maine, USA, and is a stop-off for many species of birds traveling the Eastern/Atlantic Migratory Flyway route north in the spring and south in the fall along the Eastern coast. In many cases the island is the first piece of land that birds see . . .

    URGENT – please object to new guidelines for birds and windfarms

    Dear all, The US Fish and Wildlife Service is asking the public to send in their comments regarding its revised draft Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines. The deadline for sending your comments is August 4, 2011. This concerns people from anywhere in the world, as these guidelines may inspire other countries and be used as justification for killing protected species. Please submit comments via e-mail to windenergy@fws.gov before August 4th. The Revised Draft Guidelines may be downloaded here: http://www.fws.gov/windenergy/docs/WEG_July_12_%202011.pdf More information . . .

    Make Wind Power Bird-Smart

    [Note:  Although Wind Watch finds the premise to be largely unsubstantiated that wind power has any benefit beyond tax avoidance for its investors, the need to protect birds and their environments remains crucial.] Dear U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wind power can be an important energy source for the United States, but it is just as important that it meet high standards to protect birds and other wildlife. Wind farms kill birds – including eagles, songbirds, and endangered species – through collisions . . .
